Final farewell to Etiuda terminal in Warsaw

On Saturday evening, March 28, authorities of Warsaw airport will close the Etiuda terminal, which was serving low-cost carriers and their passengers. Last November it was decided that LCCs will be moved to the main airport building starting on March 29, the day of implementing the summer schedule.

"Etiuda was a temporary solution, created to cater for rapidly growing passenger traffic, while Terminal 2 was under construction," said Jakub Mielniczuk, spokesperson for PP Porty Lotnicze, which owns, manages and operates most of Polish regional airports and the Warsaw's Frederic Chopin International Airport.

"The passenger comfort that Etiuda provided was far from what the Chopin Airport wants to offer passengers, no matter their airline or destination," added Mielniczuk.

Etiuda was used by Wizz Air, Norwegian Air Shuttle, Germanwings, Easy Jet and Iceland Express.
